"I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors."

"Everyone who walks into a therapy office has their own unique life experiences and story. Telling our story gives us the power to have a better understanding of ourselves, it allows each of us to see our lives in a different way - to see new possibilities. In our work, we learn about our resiliency to life's challenges, acceptance and value of seeing new paths. And we learn to practice the art of balancing our beliefs, emotions and spiritual yearnings to create a life full of healthy relationships and meaningful life experiences."

"I assist couples and adults with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, stress reduction, anxiety/depression, and grief. I use a combination of Mindfulness and Relational therapies because they support my belief that satisfying relationships within our self and with those we love provides the basis for a meaningful life. When our sense of connectedness to others is absent or threatened, life can feel very unsatisfactory. The effectiveness of Mindfulness based therapy is also supported by a large and growing body of scientific evidence."

With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Northwest, Portland can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Northwest, Portland or for a Northwest, Portland coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Northwest, Portland coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
